Can you tell I love rainbows and butterflies? (Grinning). And books!

Can you tell I love rainbows and butterflies? (Grinning). And books! To me rainbows not only celebrate being queer and our #lgbtqia community, but also make me think of magic and possibilities. Butterflies, especially Monarch butterflies, have always felt to me like a source of magic, strength, and inspiration. And books, of course, are pure magic all on their own. They transport us into worlds and other people’s lives, taking us from the stress in our own, and giving us so much comfort, insight, and healing.

These stained-glass rainbow butterflies fittingly hang in front of my YA and MG fantasy lit bookshelf, with some of my favourite, repeatedly read books. (I have so many more favorites, but I’ve been buying more ebooks lately than hardcopy because they are cheaper. But I hope to get paper copies of my favorites in the near future.) #rainbows #stainedglass #rainbow #LGBTQ #lgbtqiapride #butterflies

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
